A succession of yellow-centred, papery, purplish-pink flowers during June and July. This compact, sun-loving shrub is ideal for a small, sheltered, sunny border or a large, well-drained container. An excellent choice for chalky soils or warm, coastal areas, for centuries in Crete the leaves have been used for making a soothing aromatic tea.
- Garden care: After flowering, pinch back young plant to encourage a bushy habit. Lightly trim or cut back any stems that spoil the symmetry of the plant. It benefits from a liquid feed after flowering.
